Domain Names Policy
In 2001 ISC’s Network Policy Committee recommended a Domain Name Policy which was approved by IT Roundtable and the Vice President of Information Systems and Computing. This policy defines domain naming requirements and limitations and provides a process by which new 3rd level domain names are approved. Below is a brief summary of the policy.
One 3rd level domain name will be provided for each University organization existing within the following categories:
- Departments without a School Affiliation
- Institutes (serving more than one School)
- Joint Research Projects (within the University)
- Central University-wide Computing Services
- Academic Departments with a University-wide Computing Service
Each University organization falling into one of the categories listed above will receive one 3rd level domain name. A one-time setup cost will be charged for each new request. This initial domain name will not be charged a yearly maintenance fee. However, if a University organization requires more than one 3rd level domain name, that group will be charged an ongoing, yearly administrative and maintenance fee for each additional domain name.
Risk of Non-compliance
If a domain name request does not fall within the guidelines of the domain name policy, the request will be denied or can be delayed by the appeals process.
